Joakim Möller (Born 1999) is a Stockholm based photographer who specializes in Fine art Street photography. His images are often minimalistic, experimental and mysterious.
“The idea of capturing real moments of life on the street and thus making them live on, is what got me hooked on street photography. It is truly magical to me that just by pressing a button, I can preserve the things I observe forever. What I love most is how unpredictable it is. Every day when I go out on my photowalk, I have no idea what I’m going to get, and it’s the surprises that keep me coming back.
For me, it is important not to have a clear idea of what I want to say with my photographs in advance. Photography for me is just a visual diary. I usually photograph a lot, every day. I try not to think too much, I just shoot what my impulse tells me. My favorite photography quotes are: “There is only you and your camera. The limitations of your photography are within yourself, because what we see is what we are”
– Ernst Haas.
I have photographer Richard Koci Hernandez to thank for inspiring me to get into street photography in the first place. His photographs moved me in a way that no other images ever had. His work made me see the world around me in a whole new way. He is still one of my biggest sources of inspiration.”
